So here we are again a few weeks out from election day, being treated to daily pieces about how his campaign is imploding, and he’s basically already lost. It’s not that I don’t believe that’s probably true. But shit, I have a horrible sense of deja vu. Am I alone in that? I am way too fucking terrified to be Read more

One can hope for the hateful pile of suck to hurry up and die on this site though right? Read more

I’ve been surprised by how many people didn’t already know that. Seemed like an obvious tell to me, but clearly it wasn’t.

Meh, Bolsonaro in Brazil got it, and it changed nothing. He still says its a hoax, and his partisans still believe him. If anything, the fact that he got it and was fine just gave him more ammo. So I’m expecting Trump and his followers to be any different, unless he gets seriously ill (though he will probably deny Read more

I find it quite ironic that a large percentage of his base, working class middle Americans, such as farmers and industry workers are falling under the same axe that his poor policy decisions and leadership has wrought. These citizens are content to wave a flag and wear a MAGA hat so long as they are fed a steady Read more

I enjoyed it but I seem to have a tendency to be able to enjoy things without overthinking my way to a point where I can’t anymore. Read more

Yeah, CPA exam is insane - a 4-exam setup, 3.5-4 hrs ish each. Full memorization. 1 year later, the retention is essentially gone if not used regularly. It’s a fucking waste of time in that respect. So people who are great test-takers get a one-up afterwards; whereas, someone equally as capable, but not a good tester, Read more

I’m an IT person and I couldn’t do my job if I couldn’t look shit up. Even in the pre-internet days I’d have a bookshelf full of books to look shit up in. Nobody should waste time memorizing things that would be better spent understanding underlying fundamentals.

Even today, a photo taken in hospital after a pregnancy loss might for the parents feel like the only evidence that their child existed and was loved and mourned. A lot of times, there isn’t a grave to visit afterward. It wouldn’t surprise me if Teigen and Legend also took direct postmortem photos of their son that Read more

I’ve taken professional certification exams that were friggen open internet. Because in your day to day like you’re going to be able to Google something, and the test cared a lot more about how you used what you found to inform your decision making.

Many of my Masters classes were open book. And if you didn’t know what to do or exactly what to look up, there’s no way you’d finish the test. 2 hours to do on a test what took you 6-8 hours on the homework is going to require knowing what you’re doing without the need for memorizing every formula.

She took an exam, earned a B, and was told by her instructor that she would receive a “zero” because the digital proctoring service her school uses—ProctorU’s “Review+” system, which combines “a live environment scan and launch process with artificial intelligence behavior monitoring and professional review”—detected Read more

A lot of hospitals offer photography in situations like this, so its not necessarily a glamourous photoshoot. I’ve known non-famous people who post these on their social media accounts to essentially say, “they existed in this world. they will be remembered.” It wasn’t thirsty or fake for them to do it, and I think Read more

Her husband will be making all the decisions as the “Head”. She’s just the marionette.

Don't hesitate to provide more than one scratcher for your cat(s). I have one cat, and she has three of them, one in the bedroom, one in the living room, and one near the kitchen. She uses all three of them all the time. Read more
